Don't know if that means the person leaving is the one thing of value that you feel that you lost but if you did mnean that I think its a great line

Although it rhmes I dunnoif young dudes say state of grace, what about a higher place or something else?

since I am neither of these, I'll forgive you :) I like all of your suggestions, though. This song is a work of fiction, unlike most of the others.

If you want things that way

This may be considered "adult " content.  So warning... it is suppose to be a blues song, but somehow when I sing and play it sounds more like  a C./W song.  I suppose the lyrics work for that genre too.


Well I woke up this morning like I didn’t sleep at all
I felt like jumping out the window or climbing the wall
I looked around and you were not in my bed.
I looked inside and you were not in my head at all
And I really needed a cuppa joe
Or maybe something stronger but don’t you know
I don’t have a dime but I have plenty of time
To not think of you at all


Not thinking of you at all
Don’t even bother to call
I changed all the locks and got rid of the phone
I kind of like it here all alone
I’ve got nothing to say and less to feel
You’ve taken everything there is to steal 3 comments


So I’ll spend today at my ease
There’s no need to be on my knees
You never said those little words “Thank you” and “Please”
You think that you’re God’s gift to me but you’re wrong
The time spent with you was much too long
Now my radio is tuned to different songs
I don’t have a dime but I have plenty of time
To not think of you at all


Not thinking of you at all
I’m going out to have a ball
And if by chance we happen to meet
I hope we’re on opposite sides of the street
Don’t want to hear your name or see your face
I’m moving to a state of grace 2 comments


And I’ll wake up tomorrow in a brand new day
This bed is so big  now you’re not in my way
Must be a speck of dust caught in my eye
You’re not the reason for any tear I cry
Should I forget what I’m doing and think of you
May lightning strike me right in two
I don’t have a dime but I have plenty of time
To not think of you at all 2 comments
